2/5 Two Barns at Johnny's Farm
14.7.55 (Formerly listed with Johnnie's
Farmhouse as barn
GV II under General)

A pair of barns, set end to end, to the south of Johnny's Farmhouse, and
aligned north-south. Early to mid C16. Timber-framed, part weatherboarded,
part plastered, but now encased and roofed in corrugated iron sheeting. The
northern section was built as a house, but apparently converted to a farm
building very soon afterwards. 2 storeys: 4 bays. Several diamond-mullioned
windows, with mullions in situ and shutter-slides above. Roof with diminished
principals, one row of unstepped butt purlins, with clasped purlins above. The
southernmost bay has had its ceiling removed, and now forms part of the
adjoining barn. The roof over this bay collapsed, and has been removed. The
southern barn is in 4 bays, with no middle rail to the wall-framing, and arched
braces at the corners. The trusses have long arched braces to the tie-beams.
The roof, in 8 bays which do not correspond to the wall bays, is of the same
type as the adjoining building, but has in addition windbraces in the end bays.
The interior framing of these barns still makes them listable in spite of their
deteriorating exteriors.
